We chose Kalispell, Montana because it is a great community in which to live, work and play and to raise a family. Our area in the Flathead Valley offers phenomenal recreational opportunities all year round. And since we love the countryside, but still like the idea of a neighborhood, we opted for this rural cluster of homes tucked within a Ponderosa grove. We designed our home to efficiently accommodate our family while conserving on square footage. We were inspired by the concept of an open floor plan, with nooks for study or office work, and bedrooms located in different areas of the house with the common area in the center.
Our love of nature led us to focus on the landscaping with the goal of recreating a cottage-style, flower garden around our manmade pond and cascading creek. We enjoy listening to the birdsong and watching our feathered friends visit the pond. One year, we even had robins nesting in a hanging basket on the front porch!
Now we have approached a time when downsizing makes sense and renting to vacationers helps us stay connected to a very special place!
This neighborhood is wonderful because it is just outside of Kalispell far enough to feel in the country, yet it is very convenient to shopping and town activities. We wanted to be on a paved road and have a manageable sized yard and yet the quiet and privacy of a country setting. This location gave us all we were looking for and more.
As business owners, we work in town and appreciate the benefits of being close to Kalispell. The people are friendly, the entertainment and arts scene is always interesting, and the dining options are plenty! You may prefer to dine in however, with our fully equipped kitchen which is open to the dining and living areas. This allows the cook to prepare a meal while enjoying the company of others.
We often frequent the local Farmer’s Markets and gather with friends to explore the great outdoors! We also like to walk around the neighborhood and down past the meadow, just so I can hear the Meadowlark sing one last time before retiring for the night.
